Frohawk Two Feathers will perform as his improvisational rapper alter-ego, Kent Cyclone, this Friday night at Chung King Projects. From the Press Release:
Kent Cylcone is another creation from Umar Rashid, which is freestyle fusion of his two personas, the rapper, and the contemporary artist. Based on improvisation, and large amount of distilled liquids, Kent Cylcone attempts to become the best artist/performer in the universe, and his crew, the Forces of Natures, aka The Fifty Foot Wave, Peggy Sunami, and Monsoon Season, backs him up for a site specific performance. Please find below the one hit wonder by Kent Cyclone, which has brought him worldwide fame, and a whiskey sponsor.
Don’t miss the final week of Jeana Sohn’s solo show here at Taylor De Cordoba. Sohn’s new paintings were a huge success in Miami and at the gallery. Please contact the gallery for more info: 310.559.9156.
